Why Rapid Weight Gain Decreases Treatment Success Rates

At many inpatient eating disorder treatment centers patients with anorexia nervosa are required to restore their weight quickly; I’ve had patients that were forced to gain 20 pounds in 21 days! Not coincidentally, 21 days was the amount of time that managed care would cover.  There are numerous reasons as to why gaining weight this quickly actually sets the patient up for relapse. Let’s look at what gaining weight at a rapid rate does to leptin levels. In the malnourished, underweight anorexic, leptin levels are typically very low, due to low fat reserves. Usually, leptin levels reach normal levels during weight restoration. However, when weight is gained too quickly, leptin levels rise too quickly and may exceed the normal range. Of course this has the opposite ...

Appetite Hormones 101: Leptin

This series is designed to explain the role of hormones on both appetite and body weight goals, whether it’s weight loss or weight restoration. “Appetite Hormones 101” will be made up of three articles that describe the major appetite hormones: leptin, ghrelin, and peptide YY. Leptin Leptin, discovered by scientists in 1994, is also known as the “starvation hormone”. According to leptin expert, Dr Robert Lustig, leptin sends a signal to our brains that fat cells have enough stored energy to engage in normal metabolic processes. Every individual has an optimal level of leptin, which is thought to be determined genetically. When leptin levels are below optimal levels, the brain receives a message to conserve energy because the body is ...
